Earlier this week, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced that it had restored certain data for public availability that it had previously removed from its Web site in December 2015. Following the passage of the December 2015 transportation bill known as the FAST Act, FMCSA was required to remove from the public view scores contained in FMCSA’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program of property carrying commercial motor vehicle companies, such are ready mixed concrete manufacturing companies. However, in order to comply with the FAST Act immediately FMCSA pulled down more CSA information than was necessary. After having made certain changes to the CSA program, FMCSA has now re-published the allowed CSA data known as "absolute measures".

Another provision of the FAST Act required FMCSA to conduct a study on the effectiveness of the CSA program before it could place the removed data back into the public domain. FMCSA then announced earlier this week that it is has commissioned the National Academy of Sciences to examine the effectiveness with the part of the CSA program identifies as "high risk" trucking companies.
